Wildwoods Convention Center Hosts First Youth Sports Event of 2021

The Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement & Development Authority (GWTIDA) is proud to announce the reopening of the Wildwoods Convention Center for youth sporting events!

“Reopening the doors of the Wildwoods Convention Center, even at this limited capacity, means not only the return of youth sporting events, but hopefully the eventual return of meetings, conventions, weddings, and a variety of other events,” said John Siciliano, executive director/CFO of GWTIDA. “We are eager to bring competitors and visitors alike back to the Wildwoods after this long hiatus,” he continued.

Kicking things off will be amazingly athletic and talented cheerleaders from throughout the state of New Jersey for cheer championships and competitions beginning March 6 and continuing through May 16. Coincidentally, the March cheerleading competition scheduled in 2020 was the last event to be held at the Convention Center before the pandemic forced the venue to close and cancel events for the rest of the year. For each event listed below, only participants, judges, and coaches are allowed access inside the Wildwoods Convention Center, capping the capacity at a maximum 150 people. No parents or spectators will be allowed inside the facility. All teams will compete on a 54’ by 42’ spring floor and will perform incredible stunts in hopes of winning the judges’ votes. All performances will be choreographed to music and sound effects, and winning teams will be awarded trophies and banners.

The Wildwoods Convention Center is taking extensive measures to ensure that groups can enjoy a safe, comfortable and unforgettable experience. Enhanced sanitizing protocols, hand sanitizing stations positioned throughout the facility, mandated masking requirements and temperature checks for everyone entering the facility will be implemented.
